Ronaldo can't block Neymar move, says Marcelo

Ronaldo can't block Neymar move, says Marcelo

Real Madrid legend Luis Figo has warned Cristiano Ronaldo of how much the club has given him over the past nine years.

The 33-year-old forward, who joined Madrid in 2009 from Manchester United, is preparing for the World Cup with Portugal.

The reigning Ballon d'Or victor claimed he will be talking about his future in the days to come, but is yet to reaffirm the club's fans that he is staying in Spain for another year.

"What I can guarantee is a great ambition of all of us players and technical team", Ronaldo told the press at a reception held by president Marcelo Rebelo De Sousa.

"If the president (Florentino Perez) wants somebody, he'll pick somebody".

Ronaldo has hinted at a move away from Madrid, despite confidence from those in the corridors of power that he will stay, while Neymar has been linked with a return to La Liga since trading Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2017.

Marcelo has also suggested that Neymar will one day inherit a crown now owned by Ronaldo.

The front page of Diario Record has a photograph of Ronaldo with the headline: "Ronaldo will leave Real - Irreversible decision".

Ronaldo Jr, nicknamed Cristianinho, seems to have inherited all of his father's genes as he unleashed a stunning strike, reports Express UK.

Euro 2016 champions Portugal will face Spain (June 15), Morocco (June 19) and Iran (June 25) in Group B at the World Cup in Russian Federation. All in all, I think this is a game that Portugal won't take lightly, so I'll take the Portuguese to notch a win by a couple of goals here.

"What I can say is that we will do the same [of Euro 2016] fight to the end always keeping hope that in football everything is possible", Ronaldo - Portugal's most capped player and leading scorer - continued. "It's a privilege to represent our nation and let's see what awaits us".

Portugal's Football Federation posted a video on Twitter with the message: "The final whistle doesn't mean the show is over".
